I made up the bit about the drugs, by the way. That high quality rag, The Daily Mail is reporting that a Headteacher has issued letters asking her pupils to not go to school with too much fake tan.
“Carol Robinson, the head of Baines School, a mixed comprehensive in Poulton-le-Fylde, Lancashire, wrote in her letter to mums and dads, “The current trend for fake/spray tans does little to enhance the appearance of our young ladies.”
She claimed that fake tan went against the principles of the school, where staff strived to “promote natural beauty and contentment with one’s own looks”.
Her remarks have been met with cautious support with some of her more pale-skinned pupils at the school, which educates 1,070 children aged between 11 and 18.
Alison Taylor, a 17-year-old sixth former, said: “I agree fake tan should be banned. I think it looks a lot nicer to be natural than bright orange.”
Sarah Clark, 17, added: “Fake tan can be OK, but some people go a bit over-the-top and then I think it looks quite tacky.”
One parent said she had been appalled by the sight of girls walking up to the school gates with bright orange legs.
“I think the school is right to clamp down and try to drive up standards because there are other issues like the length of skirts the girls wear which are miles too short and the lads having their shirts all hanging out,” she said.
But Dr John Kellett, a Blackpool-based consultant dermatologist, said it was better for pupils to use fake tan than go on sunbeds.
He said: “Fake tan doesn’t do any harm at all to health. If the alternative is for young girls to go on the sunbed then it is preferable.”
Ahhh blessed fake tan. I didn’t realise kids as young as 11 were sharing St. Tropez with their mothers. I guess its not a teachers job to interfere with how tangoed their pupils want to look but at the same time, why the hell does a young girl need to be dying their skin! Or why does anyone need to be ORANGE anyway?
I think that some people don’t realise the are orange. You see, where Jodie March is:
(Those teeth, those luminous white veneers only contrast to her turkey basted skin).
What she sees in the mirror is:
A natural, golden beauty like Alessandra.
Other examples of bad orange are:
Christina!!!! Ok, ok it’s her image and all that but I am getting a headache looking at her.
Donatella and Iggy.
Donald, Donald. Three men left on earth, Bill Gates, Alan Sugar and Donald Trump. Who do you choose?
What do you think? Should people be allowed to get as orange as they want? Or do innocent people deserve to save their eyesight?!
